Employment Webinar: Watch Sarah Crowther QC talk on Territorial Jurisdiction

Sarah Crowther QC presents an Employment Law Webinar on Territorial Jurisdiction.

As part of the 28 barristers – 14 day Employment Law Series, Sarah Crowther QC presents a Q&A Webinar on Territorial Jurisdiction.

Sarah recently presented this webinar in a series of employment law seminars put together by Outer Temple’s Daniel Barnett. This webinar covers claims for Territorial Jurisdiction.

Increasingly employment relationships have an international element. Sarah Crowther QC discusses how the tribunals have handled difficult questions about whether those whose work takes them outside Great Britain can still enjoy the protections of employment statutes including the Employment Rights Act 1996 and the Equality Act 2010. She explains how these issues are not the same as jurisdiction and applicable law and can arise even where the contract of employment is governed by English law and how to tackle such cases in practice.

Free Representation Unit

The webinars raised £15000, which was donated to the Free Representation Unit, helping to train future generations of advocates and supporting vulnerable litigants.
